WWE teases, "Will the Real Americans finally be able to break The Italian Stallion, or will Santino’s unorthodox style —and Khali’s brute strength — overwhelm Zeb Colter’s patriotic pair?"
The updated line-up for Sunday's pay-per-view event taking place in Buffalo, New York at the First Niagara Center is as follows:
Vacant WWE Championship:
World Heavyweight Championship:
Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Rob Van Dam*
WWE Intercontinental Championship:
Curtis Axel (c) vs. R-Truth
WWE Divas Championship:
CM Punk vs. Ryback
Bray Wyatt vs. Kofi Kingston
Santino Marella & The Great Khali vs. The Real Americans
Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns**
WWE Battleground Kickoff Show:
* The Del Rio vs. Van Dam rematch will be contested under "Battleground Hardcore Rules."
** Dusty Rhodes will be in the corner of Cody & Goldust. If the Rhodes Family loses, all three men will never be allowed to work for WWE again. If they win, Cody and Goldust get their jobs back.

It all goes down like this. At 7:30pm Eastern Time, 4:30pm Pacific Time tonight, the main pages of the website will re-direct you to our live coverage center. There you will find information on tonight’s coverage. Live play-by-play updates will begin with the pre show. From there we will go right into the PPV and have updates every 1 minute until the conclusion of the pay-per view. Most websites tend to wait until a match is completed before posting one update. Not us. We will be posting updates every 1 minute from the beginning of the pay-per view until the very end. You will constantly be aware of what’s going on from start to finish.
We would like to ask you, the visitors, to tell anyone you know who is a pro wrestling fan to check out our free live play-by-play coverage of the WWE Battleground PPV tonight. We will be working very hard, so we hope to have a good turn out tonight.
